To upgrade my rig with the upcomming 4870 in CF? As my board in CF but I have an nVidia card (Yes, I knwo I did really bad there) and as I have a 8800 GTS 320 G80 I'm sure I'll notice the performance improvement... but I know my card is still good, any advices?

You will notice an improvement even with the 3850.

PS : There is nothing wrong with nVidia GPUs.

PPS : I'm lost by the CS.
